Will Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit 2009 Toyota Prius

Expert Reply:

The Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack will work great on your 2009 Prius. This bike rack has the patented FitDial system that makes sure you get a nice secure fit on the back of your vehicle. This bike rack uses 6 nylon straps to anchor it to your Prius. The bike carrier has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike. I have attached a link to an installation video of this bike rack on a Prius you can check out.

When carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the bike to be carried more level in the carrier while providing additional ground clearance. I have attached a product review video for this adapter bar.
